Circus Of Horrors

Much as I like circus and especially enjoyed the fabulous NoFit State Circus in Bristol back in June, I am not sure whether I am too squeamish for the Circus Of Horrors. Founded at Glastonbury eighteen years ago in 1995, the Circus has been described as "bloodthirsty and burlesque", "Rocky Horror on acid", and as if "Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil". I've put a YouTube clip of what could be shown on Britain's Got Talent at the end of this post - the stage show is much darker!

The new sensational show for this tour is inspired by the legendary and sinister lost movie ‘London after Midnight’. The audience is taken on a whirlwind journey though plague ridden 1660s London, witnessing five murders with each one becoming more horrific. The story intertwines with some of the most daring, bizarre and beautiful circus acts on earth. From sword swallowers to dare-devil balancing acts, hair hangers to demon dwarfs, a pickled person to astounding aerial feats, all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek by an almighty cast led by the devil driven rock n’ roll of Dr Haze and The Interceptors from Hell. .

"The Circus of Horrors contains some nudity and language of a adult nature, it is not suitable for children, people of a nervous disposition, chavs and sissies. This show contains nuts!!"

Congress Theatre, Wed 15th Jan, 19:30.
Tickets various prices, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person from the Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
